Surprise! As Twitchy reported, the House voted late Saturday night to delay Obamacare and avert a shutdown. The president? Oh, he was hitting the links, natch.

More from White House Dossier:

As the House moved Saturday toward passing legislation that will likely result in a government shutdown, President Obama excused himself to play his customary Saturday golf, a round that set a record for most golf outings in a year since he became president.

It is perhaps emblematic of his declining influence on Capitol Hill that Obama chose not to work to affect the outcome of one of the most consequential pieces of legislation in years and instead engaged in his favorite recreational activity.

Guess when he played less golf? That’s right: During the election year. Campaigning takes priority over his actual job. Presidenting is hard!

Fox News’ Harris Faulkner was also wondering, “Dude, where’s my senator?”

But, guys, maybe Obama just has a new adviser?


Double boom.

Who will think of Obama’s caddy, though? Who?

No worries! There are other caddies lined up, just in case.


And John Hayward brings it all home:
